FEMININE LANDSCAPES: Works by Dagny Piasecki & Wynn Myers

June 3, 2014 to September 5, 2014
Presented by The DEN

Wynn Myers, an Austin native, began fostering her interest in photography during adolescence. She attended the International Center of Photography. In 2006, Wynn graduated from the Maine Media Workshops’ Professional Certificate Program. Myers received her BA in Photo Communications, Summa Cum Laude, from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas.

Myers’ photographs are saturated color files of moments. Her portraits of women emote a sense of intimacy and thoughtfulness aiming to capture the essence of the person not just their physical form. Her landscapes and more abstract work acknowledge the purpose of the image to aesthetically stimulate while simultaneously acting as a visual archive. Simply shot straight on as if to say… this is the sky, this is a bird, this is a hunted animal and this is a woman.

Dagny “Dagnushka” Piasecki spent her formative years in Houston, Texas. At a young age she began using mother's Minolta x700 camera. Her technical skills were honed in school but her artistry has been mastered over the past eleven years in Austin, Texas where she has been working as both a model and professional photographer. She received her BFA in Photography from Texas State University in San Marcos and is a founding partner of You're Welcome Studios in Austin focusing on high fashion editorial. 

Piasecki’s photographs oscillate between still subject matter and activated portraiture. Often architectural in design one is allowed to view the shape of things within their element whether it is a fish on ice, a window with lace or a poster on the wall. In her photographs, her living subjects move with strength and fluidity. They command attention, unleash their raw force and envelope their environment.

 The DEN is a two-story multi-purpose real estate studio, gallery and gathering place located in Austin, Texas. It functions as an experimental space for both professionals and creative contemporaries alike that make up Austin’s thriving community. The DEN is located at the NW corner of the W Austin hotel.
